Why can YAK38 use R60 at level 9.3?

He also compared the f2h maneuverability to the yak, while the f2h can literally do dunuts around the yak…

I said giving the F3H-2 an all-aspect missile to make up for the lack of maneuverability. The best rear-aspect option is the 20G 9J, which isn’t as maneuverable as the 9L and definitely not as much as the 9L.

It is a tradeoff, the Yak-38 gets a rear-aspect 30G missile and the F3H-2 gets an all-aspect 25G missile.

1: It is a tradeoff
2: It’s rear-aspect range is comparable to the range of the R-60, and the all-aspect range is worse than the lock range of the R-60
3: The guidance doesn’t seem that much worse going off of the datamine
4: Hard to tell based off of the files
5: This just doesn’t appear to be true

Are you referring to the Aim-7C? It can’t hit anything, and on a good day can hit 15Gs, not 25.

Oh, you actual have zero idea about anything.
1: all aspect is not a trade off, it is objectively better. What is there to trade off? Both are 30g
2: yes, the lock range is the same, but the aim9l is able to reacher further due to a better motor.
3: read #2

He is refering to the aim9l. He thinks it has 25g and is comparable to the regular r60

No I’m saying the F3H-2 should get the 9L if the Yak-38 gets the R-60

The 30G is news to me, did they change that recently?

Pretty sure it has always been 30g. Unless it was 25g when it was in dev

What lack of maneuverability? If anything it would lack speed…

You kinda can’t, just don’t let it get behind you, otherwise, you’re completely screwed. However, that plane are you using?

I have made a minor spelling error and will now end it all

Well then, at the very least giving the F3H-2 at least 6x AIM-9J’s would be somewhat of a counter to the 4x R-60’s of the Yak-38

So shifting the goal post…, give them to it and move it to 9.3, it woldnt change much, you would still get beaten by an f104

Okay. And give the pe8 a radar set and 6 R77s

It’s not really shifting the goalpost if I’ve gotten something wrong (which two major goofs isn’t necessarily a great track record for me in any thread).

Bruh a comparable airframe getting two more missiles that are worse than those of the Yak-38 is somehow giving a Pe-8 ARH missiles, ok.

My bad. I thought we were taking turns giving outlandish demands
